  • Sasa's most stunning necklace to date, they knew right away they would name this in honor of Kenyan actress Lupita Nyango!  A way to honor an actress of incredible talent who dazzles every time she enters a room, this necklace features Kenyan bone, horn and brass chain - all made by hand and put together with love by Sasa's Deaf artisan team. Natural elements combined with the sparkle of faceted glass in a delicate reverse teardrop are an ode to beauty, to Kenya, to women and to design!

    Sasa Designs by the Deaf launched in Fall 2011 with the goal of providing employment and fair wages to Deaf artisans in Kenya. With an estimated unemployment rate of 85% among the Deaf in Kenya, few will have an opportunity to discover their potential, work in dignity and earn a fair wage.  Sasa Designs gives Deaf artisans the chance they’ve been waiting for – the chance to learn new skills, to discover what they are capable of and to feel productive. A subsidiary of DOOR International, Sasa Designs by the Deaf provides training and employment for Deaf women who have faced a lifetime of discrimination. For the first time, they are recognized for their potential, and not for their inability to communicate with the world at large.

    The women of Sasa Designs by the Deaf have started a new chapter in their lives, a chapter in which they use each moment to build a better life: for themselves, for their children, and for their extended family and community. Each of the artisans have a wrap named after them in this collection - a unique bracelet she helped create in order to tell her story.  Thank you for being a part of Sasa Design’s beginnings and the journey we are embarking on to change the future for Deaf women in Kenya, and someday, beyond.
